Fields of interest: Is working with numerical finite elements simulation and experimental characterisation of polymer matrix composites where the focus is on the fatigue and compression behaviour of wind turbine blade materials. A work involving the use of the commercial FE-code Abaqus together with user-defined subroutines as well as advanced characterization technichs such as 3D x-ray tomography. Has thoughout the years worked with non-linear buckling and collapse of shell structures relevant for crashworthiness applications as well as tensile instabilities simulations used in necking predictions during hydroforming and strain gradient dependent plasticity models. Has as well been involved in a number of medico inspired problems as well as in general finite element based projects predicting the influcence of non-linear materials behaviour on the structual behaviour.

Supervision: Has been supervisor for a large number of student projects. If you are interested in making a bachelor or master project in our section "Composites and Materials Nechanics”, you can get inspired from former student projects with me as supervisor. In addition, you can also find some project suggestion on DTU projektbank
